• The purpose of the the Economic Policy Centre (EPC) is to promote high quality research and debate across all areas of economics in a free democratic society.
    The EPC's vision is to close the gap between economic policy and knowledge. Ultimately it brings together economic opinion formers - in academia, business, the media and government - in new and innovative ways.

    So this started out in late May when I became annoyed by the virtual non-discussion of import tariffs which we pay as members of the EU Customs Union and Single Market. The project then mushroomed, as I realised there was a lot more to be discovered behind the headline figures of the total numbers of tariffs and what they actually cost.

    So take a look at www.eutariffs.com and please feel free to get in touch if have any suggestions.
